About

 

 

My name is Kobie Nieuwoudt, I’m an illustrator & animator living in Cape Town.

Humour is an essential part of life and I try to incorporate it into my work. For me illustrating is a positive, creative outlet and I hope it will also lighten the mood of those who come into contact with my work.

Studies & Qualifications: 

I graduated at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in 2013, specialised in Graphic Design. In 2015 I completed an Honours degree in Illustration at Stellenbosch University (Cum Laude). I found Koba Illustration & design in 2015.
